There will be no increase in city property taxes for residents of Caney in 2024.
Caney's regular session meeting yesterday included preliminary figures for the 2024 budget from City Administrator Kelly Zellner, as well as the recommendation of a revenue neutral hearing for August 21st, before the budget deadline of August 25th.
Zellner explains what revenue neutral means.
Zellner says with the recent increases in water and sewer rates, Caney city administrators did not want to see city property taxes increase, especially with household budgets being tightened in many families.
The city council set a budget workshop for July 17th at 5:30pm, just before the next regular session meeting.
In other business, the council opened up the bidding process for trash services. The deadline was set for September 1st at 2:00pm. The council also agreed to research costs to install security cameras at the city pool.
